    There's been all kinds of problems going on with people in Australia getting hold of MP-05 Megatron. Many have been confiscated as some states classify it as a "replica weapon."

    Australian Customs have put up a media release on the front page of their website:

    And the story has begun making it's way into the media:

    Madness!

    Nutty, but then that's what happens when 'jobsworth' people enforce the absolute letter of the law instead of the spirit of it.
